The election petition tribunal sitting in Oyo state has affirmed the electoral victory of a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ibadan North Federal constituency, Hon. Olaide Musliudeen Akinremi, popularly called Jagaban
Against the wish of his challenger, Ademola Omotosho of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general election at the ongoing election petition tribunal, the court said petitioner was unable to convince the panel on alleged irregularities in the said election.
In the judgement read by the vice chairman of the tribunal, Justice Sambo Daka, flanked by the Chairman Justice Anthony Akpovi and Chinyere Ani, the tribunal upheld the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the last general election declaring Akinremi as the winer of the election
Some of his associates who spoke with our reporter said they may challenge the verdict at the appeal court.
